2023, 12″ LP, Fallen Tree 1Hundred.

Searchlight features two sucsessful Irish drum and bass artists, Zero T and Beta 2, moving away from the heavy beats and bass and into the world of jazz and soul. The band was developed with guidance from Goldie for his boutique Fallen Tree 1Hundred label. Their debut album features rising Irish star Tolü Makay and also [ K S R ] who guested on the Children of Zeus album. The theme of the album is FUTURE RETRO – a new take on NEO SOUL with touches of broken beat, underground hip hop and a dash of 90s Baduizm.

Huge radio support on all pre-album singles across BBC 6Music and BBC Radio 1 (Mary Anne Hobbs, Gilles Peterson, Benji B, Huey, Lauren, Chillest Show). Lots of press features late 2021 and into 2022 from the likes of Clash, Mundane. Full press and radio campaigns back up the release. Searchlight full live show is coming in the autumn of 2022.
